    Good afternoon Model Boats members.
    I am a newbie & I am after some helpful information from any members.
    My brother in law passed away recently & was an avid builder of R/C boats & a perfectionist.
    He has a big collection of various boats, sizes, etc.
    We would like to sale them but we are not sure how to go about it.
    We have approached the local auctioneers but they want a fairly hefty part of the sale price.
    We have also looked at ebay but not to sure about that.
    We have also been in touch with Howes models but they offered a measly sum of ยฃ500 for the lot!!
    Any information would be most grateful.

    That was over 8 months ago & I am pleased to tell you that I managed to sell them all through ebay raising at least a ยฃ1000 for his wife.
    I met some of the nicest like minded people all fellow radio controlled model boat enthusiasts throughout that time.
    The "icing on the cake" for me was the donation of a 7ft scale model of the Invincible & a smaller scale model of the HMS Sheffield to a Royal Navy Museum in HMS Collingwood and they are going to arrange for the Invincible to be launched on water for the first time later this year which I will be really looking forward to.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
